MIDDLETOWN, N.J. - New Jersey will end gasoline rationing at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Gov. Chris Christie says gas supplies are plentiful and there are no more lines of motorists waiting for fuel.

Christie had imposed the rationing Nov. 3 because some gas stations couldn't get fuel while others didn't have electricity to pump it as a result of Superstorm Sandy.

Rationing was put in effect in 12 counties in central and northern New Jersey.

The governor notes New Jersey was first to impose rationing and that others followed the state's lead. New York did not impose rationing until Friday, six days after New Jersey.
